Eleanor looked radiant and thero
was a becoming blush on her cheeks
as sho turned to nod farewell over her
Struthers had closed the front door,
apd thoy wore descending tho BtcpB,
ns n stylish dog-cart, drawn by a mag
nificent looking pair of bays, clattered
slowly up tho street. Tho flush on
Eleanor'B cheeks bocamo a deep red.
With a glanco sho had realized that
tho young man who held tho relnB was
Owen Pane. Ho waB looking Inquir
ingly at tho numbers, and now, as ho
drew up boforo tho house, ho recog
nized her and sprang down from tho
"I hopo I am In tlmo to catch you,"
ho said, ns they shook hands. "Will
you do mo the honor of driving with
me? I had como to ask you."
For an Instant, Eleanor hesitated;
then Bho Bald:
"I am very sorry, Mr. Pago, but 1
havo promised to walk with Mr.
Struthers this afternoon. Wo wore
Just starting, In fact, ob you drove up."
Tho two men exchanged looks, and
there was an awkward pauso, which
was broken by hor adding:
"Mr. Struthers, thlB 1b Mr. Page, a
friend of my aunt's and mine."
"I regret exceedingly that I Bhould
bo so unlucky," said Owen Page, with
evident chagrin. "I shall hopo to bo
moro fortunato another time."
"I beg that you will not allow mo to
lntorforo with your pleasure, Miss
Baldwin. Wo can walk another day,"
exclaimed StrutherB, In a tone that
was gentle, but almost Bad.
Eleanor looked from ono to tho
other, and, uncomfortable ns tho sltua-
tlon was, could not help being struck
by tho contrast In their appearance.
Owen Pago woro a perfectly fitting,
dnrk drab coat, adorned by a big but
tonhole bouquet. Tho standing collar
that encased Ills neck, his closely
cropped whiskers, and short, pointed,
nuburn beard and his tan-colored driv
ing gloves were equally trim, and In

held by an Irreproachable groom. Be
sldo him, Mr. Struthers, In nondescript
popper-and-salt, looked commonplaco
Again Bho seemed to hesltato.
"I cannot go with you both," Bhe
said, with a smile, "and I think an
engagement 1b an engagement Mr.
Pago, I must ask you to excuse me
A moment later, Owen Pago had
mounted to his seat, and raising his
hat rather gravely, ho drove his pair
down tho street. Glancing at Struth
ers, Eleanor observed that ho was
standing gazing after him with an
absorbed air that seemed far from
"Aro you ready?" sho asked, gayly,
opening her parasol.
Sho was conscious, somehow, of ela
tion. "Why did you not go with him?" ho
"Did you wish mo to go with him?"
"I did not wish you to feel bound to
go with mo."
"You will havo to put up with mo
now," sho said, with a smile.
"I am afraid you think I am un
grateful." Then ho said with marked
directness: "It would have been a
grievous disappointment to me."
Sho made a little curtsey.
"Who Is that gentleman, Miss Bald
win?" "Mr. Owen Pnge." Then sho added:
"I havo seen him quite frequently at
my aunt's and elsewhere. Ho Is very
rich, I believe, and he owns a yacht
and a great many horses, and er Is
much Interested in farming."
The melancholy In Struthers' tono
struck Eleanor. In her reply sho had
spoken half Ironically, without exact
ly meaning to do so. It had suited
her mood, which had become buoyant.
And now her companion's mournful
ejaculation seemed to her very funny.
Why should ho be mournful? What
was Owen Page to him or ho to Owen
Pago? If she had forsaken him for
Mr. Page, there might havo been
ground for gloom, but hero he was
walking with her as he desired, and
yet his humor had changed In a mo
ment from cheerfulness to dejection.
What was tho reason?
She was conscious herself of being
In the best of splritB. What a lovely
day It was, and how agreeable tho air
with its bracing suggestion of au
tumn! Sho felt like flying, or, since
that was denied her, like talking vol
ubly. "Oh, Mr. Struthers! Uncle Phln
approves entirely, nnd he thinks that
he Knows of a position. In another
month I hope to bo hard at work. Wo
had Just finished talking about It w hen
you came in."
At her words, Struthers seemed to
start as one awakened from a maze.
"1 congratulate you," ho said.
"But you do not approve?"
"On tho contrary, I do, heartily."
"There was so little enthusiasm in
your tone that I was doubtful."
"Can you expect mo to be enthusi
astic that you are going away?"
"Trial was very prettily said, Mr.
"Prettily said? I am not a man to
make pretty speeches. Miss Baldwin.
I am very much in earnest. 1 " Ho
stopped short in his eager dollvory,
and, after an instant, L'dded softly:
"Excuse me. I havo no right to bore
you with my own emotions."
"Bore me? You could not do that,
I tLInk," Eleanor answered, awed by
Robert Donner'a Son. fi

For somo minutes thoy walked in
silence, traversing tho stretch of side
walk that lay between them and tho
park. When closo to It, ho suddenly
turned and said:
"Thero is something I wish you to
hear, Miss Baldwin. I will wait until
we aro where wo can talk freely."
Whereupon ho led tho way Into tho
park and along tho main avenue. At
tho first opportunity ho branched oft
Into a sidepath, with which ho ap
peared to be familiar. When thoy woro
sheltered from probability of interrup
tion ho slackened his pace, and snld,
pointing to n bench:
"Shall wo sit hero?"
Eleanor seated herself. Sho had
divined from his manner what waB
brewing, and sho would fain havo pre
vented him from speaking; but It was
obvious that ho was determined to
havo his say. Ho was standing bo
foro her with his hands still clasped
behind his back. His face reflected
gravo resolution, his eyes were bright
with tho stress of excitement. Still
tho voice In which he now began was
composed, though clear:
"A fortnight ago, Miss Baldwin, 1
did not know of your existence; to
day thero Is no ono In tho world to
ward whom I feel as I feol toward
you. 1 am a young man Just starting
In life, poor and struggling, without
Influence, and dependent solely on my
own endeavors in order to make my
way. I am well aware that a woman
such as you can afford to bo Indlffcr
'cnt to tho love of a man llko me. I
remember well that on tho first even
ing of our acquaintance an evening
vory moment of which is precious to
my memory you said that you would
make nono but a brilliant match.
Moreover, what havo I to offer you
excopt poverty? Even If you would,
wo could not venture to bo mnrrled,
for I have not the means with which
to support you. You see I recognlzo
tho hopelessness of the situation. And
yet I am bold or fatuous enough,
whichever you may call It, to tell you
of my lovo; to tell you what a bliss
ful Influence your presenco and so
ciety havo been to mo during theso
two short weeks. I told you on that
Bamo first evening that I had never
been in love. I know now both Its
rapture and its anguish. I know, too,
how the gall of Jealousy can In an
Instant blot happiness from the heart
and bleach the glory from the sun
shine. You are going away far away,
very likely, and In another fortnight
I can scarcely hope to bo remembered.
Well, you havo my secret ono which
I did not Intend lo part with; and the
worst of It is, tho telling of it cannot
avail mo, as I well understand."
As Struthers finished ho seated him
self on tho bench beside Eleanor and
covered his face with his hands.
For a few moments she was silent,
then she said:
"You may bo suro of ono thing, Mr.
Struthers: I shall not easily forget
you. This fortnight has been a very
pleasant one to me, and largely so be
cause of your presence. I am very,
very sorry that you feel as you do,
and that I cannot help you. I am your
friend, but It is not lovo that I feel
"I had no Idea that you loved me.
No; I havo merely opened my heart
to you because I could not help it
Still I shall never give up hoping
against hope," he added, lifting his
tear-dimmed eyes to hers. "You spoko
onco of your life-work and asked If I
would over give up mine for the sake
of a woman. My life-work for the fu
ture is to win your love. Only tell me
truly before I ceaso to trouble you,"
ho went on, "that thero Is no ono else
whom you love. Thero was something
In tho look of that man who came to
take you to drive with him that forced
the iron into my soul and mado me
feel that I had in him n rival. Does
be lovo you, too? You cannot deny It,
"I do not lovo Mr. Pago. I shall
never marry him, even If he asks me."
"Thank you for that. And now all
thnt remains for me is to make the
most of myself, to win a name and
fortuno and success, In order to ren
der mysolf In somo measure worthy
to bo your husband. I shall hope
you cannot prevent mo from that; and
the day may come whon I shall dare
to speak to you again of my love,
which tlmo will only make stronger
and deeper. I see you shake your
head. That will not deter me. Some
day I shall win you from yourself."
Again Eleanor shook her head sadly.
"It Is true," she said, "that I cannot
prevent you from hoping against hope,
but I warn you that it Is at your peril.
Poor Aunt Emma! Sho has done her
best to win mo from myself. Why
should you hope," she asked, with a
sweet smile, "to succeed when she has
Five years had slipped away. Ono
autumn afternoon, not long after her
return from the seaside, Mrs. Stagg
was sitting In her drawing-room bo-
side the low table, from which sho had
dispensed tea to five o'clock visitors.
Thore had been several of these, hut
the last had Just gone, and It was lato
to expect more. She had taken ad
vantage of being alono to fill a cup
for herself, from which she was sip
ping meditatively. Time had boen for
bearing toward hor; sho was compla
cently conscious that few women with
a daughter nearly old onough to ontor
society could boast of so good a flguro
aud such a generally youthful effect.
But her prcsont reflections concerned
neither her appearance nor hor daugh
ter. Ab she set down tho empty cup
sho gave a long sigh, as a sort of out
let for her feelings, nnd glanced at
tho clock. Whllo she was saying to
herself that it was lato for her hus
band, ho entered tho room.
"Ah, Cherub! I am behind time. Is
tho tea cold?"
"I havo only this instant finished

Llko most men, Harold had no tasto
for guessing. Ho merely stirred his
tea and waited.
"Owen Page," sho continued. "They
got back a week ago. Ho Is looking
wonderfully well not a day older
and he says that his wifo has entirely
recovered from the effects of tho Ro
"How long havo they been abroad?"
"Three years. They sailed a fort
night after thoy wero married, you
remember, and havo been thero over
since. He says that, with the excep
tion of his wife's illness, everything
has run as smoothly as possible and
that they could not havo had a pleas
anter experience. Whenever I think,
Harold, that It might have been El
eanor, instead of her, I declare that I
feel like screaming."
Harold Stagg, whose movements
mentally, as well as physically, were
slightly more deliberate, as tho result
of a fow inches of extra girth, stirred
what waB left of his tea and drained
It; then, as ho handed back tho cup,
"You might scream yourself black

"You never did understand, Har

never truly sympathized."

"You have, my dear. What Is the
use of reviving it for the fifty-first?
As to my lack of sympathy, that Is a

"May not! It could not! I do not be

so good a chance, and who throw It
away so idiotically. I remember what

"I couldn't compel her to marry him
If sho didn't chooso to."
"No, but you could have put your
foot down and declared that sho should
not leave us. I was willing to trust to
time. If she had not been allowed to
go to that fearful college, I am confi
dent that she would have married
Owen Page within a year. Well, as
you say, I am a fool to bother my head
about her. I washed my hands of her
five ears ago."
"Oh, no, you didn't, Cherub. You
pretended to, but you couldn't. You
will alwnys have a soft spot In your
heart for her."
"I did my duty by her If ever wom
an did," Emma answered, with non
committal sternness. Then, with quick
perception, she added: "Is that letter
from her?" ,
Harold had taken out a letter from
his pocket while sho was speaking.
"Yes," he said. "Sho wishes me to
pay her a visit."
"At her college."
"What do you mean?"
(To he continued.)

I suffered from terrible dragging sen

and the most agonizing headnches.

I was sick to the stomach, and every
